If you are wondering what a facelift surgery can do for you, take a look at some of the Hollywood men women swoon over—Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth, and Henry Cavill to name a few. A facelift or a mini-facelift gives not only a tauter and younger look to an aging face but also a stronger jawline that makes a person appear more masculine. Think of the baby-faced Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic and the rugged and masculine actor as he appeared in The Departed. Whether he went in for a facelift procedure or not is a moot point here, but you can browse through a few facelift before-and-after photos to witness some real transformations.

What Are Facelifts?

During a facelift procedure, the surgeon removes excess fat from the face and the neck and lifts, re-positions, and tightens the muscles and deep tissues in these areas to diminish the signs of aging and give a tauter appearance to the person.

Chubby cheeks and folds of fat on the neck look adorable on a kid, but not on a man. The fat hides your bone structure and jawline and gives you a soft, delicate look, a far cry from the aura of manliness you want to exude. A facelift removes sagging areas of fat, the deep creases between the mouth and the nose, and the folds of loose skin around the jawline. Your bone structure and jawline become more prominent and your face acquires a rugged and chiseled look. You appear more masculine, like a man who is capable of taking on the world to protect his loved ones.

Facelift recovery starts within weeks of the surgery. Minor side effects like swelling, bruising, and feelings of numbness or tightness go away within 3-6 weeks after the surgery, and you can expect to return to work soon.

The Appeal of Masculinity: Why Men Go in for Facelifts?

There’s a scientific reason why masculine faces in men are perceived to be more attractive than childish features. Well-defined features like prominent cheekbones and chiseled jawline are signs of healthy bone development, which in turn, indicates good health. Women are biologically programmed to be attracted to and choose healthy mates for evolutionary purposes.

Men with well-defined facial features tend to have attractive smiles because facial bone structure also affects the layout of the teeth. Look at any picture of Hugh Jackman or Patrick Dempsey smiling, and you will get the idea. Both these actors are past 40, but still retain the taut, chiseled look of their younger days. Was a facelift involved? We will reserve the debate for some other time.

Getting a facelift, NYC men say, amps up confidence in their appearances in a city inhabited by many Hollywood A-listers who have taken the concept of attractiveness to a standard of perfection. Facelifts are safe and give you a drool-worthy masculine appeal that attire and accessories cannot. If you are wondering how much does a facelift cost, add up all that you spend on creams and other beauty treatments to look the way you want to, and compare. You won’t doubt the cost-efficiency of a facelift procedure ever.

Hollywood & Jaws Meet NYC

Summer may be ‘round the corner and once beach season truly hits, it’s all about one thing- JAWS. I don’t mean the voracious sea villain catapulted into fame by Steven Spielberg. I mean the cosmetic trend that is influencing male patients from all corners of the world.

And speaking of big blockbuster favorites, Hollywood has always played a huge role in uprising procedures especially the latest-Jaw Augmentation Surgery. Jaw augmentations are usually accompanied with the popularity of chin augmentation requests and consultations. This increase in awareness of this treatment/technique is being accredited to the superhuman appearance of the superheroes we love in large budget cinematic adventures. Enter Chris Hemsworth of The Avengers, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Christopher Pratt of Guardians of The Galaxy as some of the A-List hunks raising the bar and ideals of masculine features in the movie business and in the cosmetic industry for males.

Jaw Augmentation Surgery

Beauty and rugged good looks is not down to an exact science or formula of perfection.  However, some Facial Plastic Surgeons attribute a few specific balanced proportions that the “perfect” facial structure contains (i.e. height, width and symmetry). For example, many individuals tend to think of a large prominent jaw as being masculine and portrays strength on a man; conversely, a less defined jaw line appears feminine and seems “weak”.  In addition, an individual’s jaw imbalance can make other facial features seem distorted, making a small nose seem even smaller.

Jaw Augmentation or Mandibular Augmentation is most commonly performed to correct an inferior jaw structure due to a congenital deficiency or facial trauma. Jaw Augmentation is the use of synthetics or biologicals to augment, or make the mandibular structure of the face more prominent or defined.  It can give balance to an otherwise less defined face or further augment an already existent jaw structure. For jawline augmentation, an incision is made inside the mouth near the area of the third molars and an implant is inserted.  Both a jawline and chin augmentation can be performed within the same surgery for male patients in NYC. Hence, this is why the combination is very popular as they go hand in hand for optimal results.

Jaw augmentations produce extremely successful, desired results for those males who are looking to enhance a new level of confidence and get an edge on the competition. More often than not, males bring along a photo of the top granite actors they are trying to emulate. It is important to have open communication and understanding with your board-certified surgeon to achieve the right aesthetic look that meets the masculine standard.

Jaw Implants

A strong jaw line can provide definition to your facial contour and balance other features such as the cheek bones, chin, and nose. If you feel that a more prominent jaw line could help improve the overall appearance of your face, then jaw implants may be an excellent option to accomplish your aesthetic goals.

Considering Jaw Implants/Augmentation

Who is a good candidate for Jaw Augmentation?

It is important that your teeth and jaw function properly in order to ensure that your jaw implant procedure achieves your desired results. At your initial consultation, Dr. Douglas Steinbrech will evaluate your jaw function when deciding whether this is the right procedure for you.

Ideal jaw implant candidates should also be in good overall health and have reasonable expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Additional procedures may also be recommended in conjunction with your procedure to enhance the results.

Recovery

Slight swelling post jawline/chin augmentation surgery is common; quickly reducing within 24-48 hours after surgery. Most male patients in NYC return to work within a few days after augmentation surgery, however strenuous exercise should be avoided for ten days. It is always the best idea to follow a surgeon’s direct recovery plan as of course, any surgical procedure that is performed is extremely personal and customized. Instructions in the areas of dental and oral hygiene post-surgery should also be provided.
